Default Luftwaffe kurssteuerung K23

Hi,

Does anyone know about documentation for the Siemens-LGW K23 kurssteuerung?. It seams hard to find photos or other documents covering the K23 autopilot.

Best regards

There is not a lot available. Kurt Kracheel published some schematics and a description in his book. Other than this there is some US intelligence as they captured a number of units, completed them and test flew them after the war. The K23 was a further development of the K22 with the LRM12 servo replaced by a simple electric servo controlled by a so called "ITA-regler". In the K23 all the main components (Dämfungskreisel, Normalkraftmesser, Mischgerät and ITA-regler) were all united into a single control unit. I will probably publish something on the k22 and K23 in future...

regards,

Funksammler

Hi Funksammler,

Thank you for the info, looking forward to read you publication on the K22 and K23.

In the meantime, where can I find documentation on the K22 system, it seams to be just as hard to find as the K23.

Best regards,

Hello Funksammler,

Thanks for the tip, yes I do se some equipment, a box with K-3 behind the pilots seat, and on the other side a "Wiederstandkasten", in the wheel well a connector marked K-20 and below some boxes that could be gyros. Also a box marked K-1.

Do you know what the equipment are and the interconnections?

Best regards
